In some catalog over Christmas, I saw these advertised a dozen for $30.  As they were Oreos with marshmallows on top covered in chocolate, I thought we could make some for cheaper than that.

And so ... we did!

(with "snow" aka Confectioner's Sugar)



The ingredients (minus the sugar):



Melt the chocolates in a double boiler (with a little help from Mom):



When melted, remove to a work surface and dip Oreo in it:



Then dip a marshmallow:



Put the marshmallow on top of the Oreo:



And then you'll get a collection, to let cool/dry/harden/verb of your choice:



Mom and I put them on plates and dusted with powdered sugar.  They'd also be tasty with mint Oreos and dark chocolate instead of milk (I prefer milk, though) and maybe a little strip of fruit roll-up around the base as a 'hat band'.

Enjoy!
